The benefits of using our employment lawyers
Employers do not always follow the correct procedures in disciplinary matters. Maybe you feel you have been unfairly treated at a disciplinary or performance management meeting, or told you are at risk of having your employment terminated. Our employment solicitors can clarify whether you have a case and help fight your corner.
How our employment lawyers can help:
- Provide an impartial appraisal of the circumstances
- Assess the most likely outcome and advise how best to achieve a satisfactory resolution
- Support you through any legal action
- Negotiate a fair and amicable exit.

Our client was called into a meeting and informed his employment was being terminated because of performance issues. As he was not made aware of any performance issues prior to this meeting we advised him he had an extremely good claim for unfair dismissal and issued proceedings in the employment tribunal for him.
Our client was dismissed for gross misconduct, his employer alleged he had threatened and bullied other members of staff. The employer failed to investigate the matter, failed to inform our client in advance of the dismissal meeting of the allegations, failed to offer him the right to be accompanied or of his right to appeal his dismissal. We advised our client he had a very good claim for unfair dismissal and negotiated him a compensation payment which included payment of our legal costs without the need to issue employment tribunal proceedings.
